FLOORING GOES DOWN QUICKER THAN EXPECTED

Up and out to get another busy day started. The weather is beautiful today,sunny mid 70's.
After chores and breakfast Hubbie and I picked up #2 son who took the rest of the week off to use up some of his vacation time, and headed to daughter's house to get to the flooring project.
Daughter brought us lunch from Fatz which was very good,I saved part of mine for supper.We stuck to our system of me laying the boards out, #2 son putting them together and hubbie running the saw for the end pieces and it went down quicker than I expected.#2 son got the worst part of the job as he figured out how to cut around the door jams.
By the time we decided to stop we were well past the bar into the dining room. My knees were hurting, #2 son was tired and his back and knees were hurting and hubbie's elbow was hurting so at 5:30 we called it a day.
I think the floor is beautiful against the colors she choose.
Hubbie and #2 son will finish the floor tomorrow and maybe get her blinds hung along with some painting on Friday to end a very successful week of work over there.
After supper I crashed on the couch to watch the news and it was hard to make myself get up and do the evening chores.
Daughter came in and started her baking. I did weekly paperwork and paid bills tonight.
We watched Survivor on TV, we've missed the first episodes but it didn't matter tonight.
I iced a chocolate cake tonight and headed for an early bed time for my sore muscles.
God is so gracious and good and I prayerfully seek Him all during the day.
Good Night and God Bless.
